The start of a new month means lots more critters to catch in Animal Crossing, although this time more are leaving than arriving.

October may be all about the build-up to Halloween in Animal Crossing, but the start of a new month always brings with it other changes, namely new (or returning) bugs, fish, and sea creatures.

Given the time of year there are more leaving than arriving, when it comes to the northern hemisphere, but there’s still some that have never been seen before.

The ladybug will be easy to pick up as soon as you see it, but the spiny lobster and Venus’ flower basket are both fast moving and likely to be tricky to collect when you’re swimming.



New bugs for October in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Ladybug – 8am to 5pm (on flowers)



New fish for September in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Dab – all day (sea)



New sea creature for September in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Spiny Lobster – 9pm to 4am
Seaweed – all day
Venus’ Flower Basket – all day

The most important thing to do this month though is catch up on all the critters you haven’t caught before, which will be disappearing at the end of October and won’t reappear until next year.

This includes difficult to catch creatures such as the scorpion, the Giant Trevally and Mahi-Mahi, and the fast-moving Giant Isopod.
